I bought my first RO
unit yesterday! I got the 75 GPD RO
4 Stage Economy System from BRS since the 5 stage plus was out of stock. Oh well, I figure I don't need the 5th stage and I got a float valve, faucet kit, etc. for less combined anyway.
I also bought the stuff for my return(locline)
And I painted the back of the tank with 2 layers(I started with krylon plastic application spray paint, then switched to actual glass spray paint for second layer), but i tried touching up a spot and it all wiped away.... Oh well I'll probably just scrape it all off and use the right kind of paint from the start lol.
I'm going to get all my plumbing soon, I think I have a good list of what I need:
From Overflow(In order) - 1 1/2"
Elbow, Union, Ball Valve, PVC
down, then 45 degree leading to sump
Return Line(In order) - 1/2"
/ 45 degree out of stand, Check Valve(?)
or ball valve first I don't know, then union, elbow into bulkhead.
I can just use nipples to put the unions, ball valves, and elbows together right?
Also, I'm pretty sure I'm just going to buy a 36 LED
kit from rapidled.com. Or 24 with some extra LEDs added on. Prices have gone down quite a bit.
So that's where I'm at right now.
